"Many of us discovered Cox & Forkum in the days after September 11th. It was a strange time. After cartoonists had done their initial muted-in-sorrow Statue-of-Liberty-with-head-bowed-to-the-missing-towers tastefully tragic responses to the day itself, many seemed to have great difficulty finding a tone for the new era. And into the void stepped Cox & Forkum." -- MARK STEYN from the introduction

ONLY $20 plus shipping.
UPDATE I: Like our last book, Black & White World III is available online through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com. But our new book will also be available at The Steyn Line store and American Compass Book Club.
UPDATE II: Above I stated that our first book was "out of print and unavailable." That was only partly correct. Black & White World is out of print, but a few copies are still available online from a couple of vendors who originally carried the book. If you're looking for a copy, try The Intellectual Activist and Quent Cordair. Amazon may have a few copies left, too. But none of these inventories of the first book will be replenished.
UPDATE III -- Nov. 7, 12:01AM: Our signed-book offer is officially over. Books should ship by mid-November. If we should offer them again, we'll post it here. But let me repeat: Signed books are no longer available. Of course, unsigned books are available, so feel free to please orders for those. Other sources will soon have the new book, too.
Our thanks to everyone who has placed an order. Book sales are one of the ways we make money creating our cartoons, so your support is appreciated.
